Nashville Predators Sign 2 Forwards to Extensions

The Nashville Predators have already started making moves for their offseason, as they have signed both Michael McCarron and Kiefer Sherwood to a one-year, $775,000 contract extension.

McCarron will continue to be a serviceable fourth-line option for the Predators from here. The 6-foot-6 forward appeared in 32 games this season with Nashville, where he had two goals, two assists, and 75 hits. The 2013 first-round pick provides plenty of physicality and toughness to the Predators' roster, so this looks like a decent depth move for them on paper.

Sherwood, on the other hand, also played in 32 games this season for the Predators, where he had seven goals and 13 points. Overall, he has proven that he can chip in occasionally when called up, and he will continue to be a decent depth option for the Predators during the 2023-24 season because of it. He also was very good for the Milwaukee Admirals this year, as he had 22 goals and 38 points in 42 games.

Overall, the Predators are keeping around two solid call-up options with these small deals. We will need to wait and see how much of an impact they can make for the Predators next season from here.
